>> good morning. are you awake? [laughter] i like to welcome everyone for coming to market is very important day for the city and its infrastructure. i am from the department of public works. our agency is responsible for the care and maintenance of the city infrastructure within the city right of way. this includes streets, sidewalks, curb ramps, and all of the connectors for residents and visitors. we are also responsible for maintaining and insuring that our roads and right of ways are safe, accessible, and enjoyable for everyone. this all happens with incredible support that we get from our mayor, the board of
10:37 am
supervisors, and other agencies. that includes our valued customers and community partners all working together. we have representatives from walk san francisco, the san francisco coalition, members of the local 261 who work hard with us from getting the bond pas sed, san francisco capital planning committee, the office of the city administrator, norman kelly is here, the mayor's office of public finance, the mayor's office of disability, the san francisco planning department, others and
10:38 am
all the staff, the public utilities commission. we have been working hard with them to make sure that we support all of the projects and that we will be ready to implement. we're here today to launch the bond program that will make a significant -- that will make significant repairs to our streets and build new streetscapes for many neighborhoods. last week, the board of supervisors unanimously approved the sale of the first round of bonds. we're very happy about that. we're getting ready to start work. i will ask our mayor to come up and say a few words. mayor ed lee. [applause] >> you do not have to lower it that low. [laughter]
10:39 am
thank you, everybody, for coming today. i very much enjoyed these particular events. we have worked closely to make sure our infrastructure gets done. we enjoy seeing things get started, not just good legislation, but things that are employment -- implementable. you all came to make sure that we did curb ramps, bike lanes, pedestrian safety, to make sure the streets were more walkable. a lot of people came together for a remarkable work that reflects that if we all come with the right reasons and with less politics, we can get a lot of good stuff done. i want to note that nadia is
10:40 am
not a the mayor's office anymore. she is at the comptroller's office. her office along with the comptroller, our 10-year capital infrastructure planning, have provided the discipline for the public to understand the message. the message is that your property taxes would not be raised if you give us a chance to start paying our streets. we have not figured out that for decades we did not invest in our infrastructure properly. this is the beginning of a new relationship with our public, one that we will carry out with our new city administrator who will help us launch even more efforts to deliver on promises that do not raise property taxes unless it is absolutely necessary. in this case, it is not. we kept that promise with the 10-year capital plan. we will make sure these projects come in on time. that is why our city engineer is
10:41 am
here. it is his project managers that help was so much -- help with so much dpw were to make sure the city staff work together. this is valuable money. we will not squander the opportunity the public gave us. we will start seeing 17th street it repaved. this is $4 million of the bond passed to pave streets, and do additional curb ramps, and be consistent with the standards that we have. we will work with ed at mta to get more signaling modernization to lessen the ingestion. they really need the efficiencies of our streets to properly get everybody through.
10:42 am
then they will have less accidents and delays. we know all of this comes together with our other utilities. puc is here because they are going to help. every time we break up the street, we will look at opportunities to see what else we can do with our sewers and water systems so that we coordinate all of this. we will use every opportunity to be smart in come on, and beneath the streets as we do the infrastructure. bge and at&t and other utilities will be coordinating with us. we want to do it right and use the precious money. i know that rings well with our board president chiu adjuster arrived. he knows this is a precious moment. we worked on the first effort that did not succeed. it hurts when we cannot get that stuff done.
10:43 am
we will adhere to the rigors of our 10-year capital plan brian knows how hard it is to get all of the department's and agencies together to understand what we're doing with the 10-year capital plan. there are a lot of elements. as mayor, i want you to know that this is my new desk. it is global. it will be the kind of desk that i like working at. this is the one that will get things done. it is one that you can ride a bicycle around. it is kind of a public works type looking desk. it will evidence as we go around all these projects that the $240 million will pay for, and as we work on long-term infrastructure funding that does not increase property taxes but honors what people pay through their taxes to get stuff done in
10:44 am
the city. i am looking forward to working on this desk for many years to come. thank you very much. [applause] >> next, i would like to introduce the supervisor who was a strong supporter of the bond. he led the charge and built many bridges. he brought many community groups together. he was there working hard with us. it is only appropriate that we launched this bond program in his district, supervisors got leaner -- supervisors go scott wiener. >> i want to welcome you to the oldest neighborhood in san francisco. i am proud to represent it. it is about to get new road
10:45 am
surfacing. i am very excited about that. 17th street is a major thoroughfare for cars and bikes connecting the castro close to san francisco general hospital. it is a very appropriate place to start. when we went in to the campaign , i was proud to work with a great team to pass it. there were a lot of people who said to me to go for it but it will never pass in 100 years. sometimes we failed to get it on the ballot. in 25 years, two different bonds have failed. that is not just in san francisco but throughout the bay area. it has been a very hard thing to do a hard sell. the people of san francisco understand that we as the country have failed in maintaining our infrastructure and investing in that.
10:46 am
we see the consequences of that with bridges and public transportation and roads. people are beginning to understand that we have to invest in our infrastructure. our roads and sidewalks are a key part of that. i am so proud of the people of san francisco for understanding that and giving us the 2/3 that we needed. my counterparts around the bay area and elected officials from other areas of the county, their jaws dropped because they have never been able to do it. it is a great thing for san francisco. we will make significant improvement to our infrastructure. the day after the election, he should have been lounging in the wadi, -- in hawaii, but he called me into his office to get to work right away. it has been amazing the team effort to move this forward and
10:47 am
get it implemented quickly. mayer, president, thank you. thank you to everyone who has made this a reality. i look forward to making our infrastructure even better. [applause] >> another big hand for scott, who worked tirelessly to make sure that this happened. [applause] the next person i am going to introduce is a member of the planning committee and is responsible for implementing and developing the 10-year capital plan, a supervisor and or president david -- and board president david chiu. >> it is great to be here. this is a wonderful celebration. i am sorry i am late. i spent this morning going through four different districts. i experienced many of the pot holes in those districts. this is wonderful. it has been a long road. it has been a long road. many years of wanting to get
